Domaine Tempier Rosé is one of Sofia’s and my favorite Rosé’s. They are a gold standard for Bandol Rosé and Rosé in general. They are always so much better when you let them rest a year or two. Finally, opening our first 2017. The nose shows; lots of orange citrus with a heart of tangerine, lean strawberries & watermelon near the rind, hints of fresh, ripe, rhubarb, orange blossoms, marmalade, notes of soft white cheese rind, white spice, chalk, alluvial minerals, spring flowers and pink roses. The body is thick, round and just a touch gluey. It’s beautiful as it glides over the palate. Orange citrus with a heart of tangerine, lean strawberries & watermelon near the rind, hints of fresh, ripe, rhubarb, raspberries, pink grapefruit w/ a touch of sugar, orange blossoms, slightly baked marmalade, notes of soft white cheese rind, white spice with a touch of palate heat, amazing, soft, powdery chalkiness, dry twig or toothpick, alluvial minerals, spring flowers and pink roses. The acidity is round and perfect. The long finish is, rich, lush, polished, well balanced and harmonious on a warm summer day. Photo’s of, the entrance sign to Domaine Tempier, the drive up to the Domaine and their barrel room where we tasted from barrel with their Assistant Winemaker.

What complexity and character here. A great mixture of fruits, from lemon curd to apple skin, showing with bushels of wild herbs and flowers, making this yet another extremely expressive and unique wine from Tempier.

Might be just as good as Lulu’s rosé. Grapefruit zest and crushed shells.

Hierbas!! Big herbal nose, structured, orange blossom, rustic, inelegant in a good way. Brilliant with halibut en papillote.
